Linux is one of the most popular OSs for servers. There are many different distributions that use exactly the same core, but the great majority have several things in common - they are absolutely free to use, which cuts down the total cost of the web hosting service as license fees will not be included in what you will need to pay; they're easy to manage; and last, but not least, they are considerably more secure in comparison with competitor OSs, as random files, especially virus-infected ones, just cannot be executed on the web server. That way, you will be able to enjoy a secure service and spend the time developing and advertising your web sites, not worrying about security issues. Loads of Linux-based machines use the Apache server to handle the HTTP traffic, since this piece of software is very quick and is also easy to maintain and modify depending on the needs of the website hosting provider. A Linux hosting server with Apache is the most suitable software environment for your websites and it's not at all a coincidence that many popular script-driven applications out there require LAMP, which symbolizes Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
